Legends in the making as Legend Products and Services sponsors IRL Scholarship

July 3rd, 2024

Legend Products and Services recently hosted an annual trade night where industry members gathered to discuss advancements and opportunities in the field.

At the event, Legend partnered with IRLearning to highlight the importance of qualifications in the industry, particularly focusing on the Certificate IV in Swimming Pool and Spa Building, a certification that signifies proficiency and shows a dedication to mastering the intricacies of pool construction.

Legend managing director David Webber demonstrated his commitment to fostering talent by sponsoring a scholarship for the Certificate IV program.

Webber is dedicated to raising awareness around the pool building qualification and has committed to sponsoring the scholarship for the next three years. He is enthusiastic about promoting the educational pathway for aspiring pool builders and believes this initiative is an effective way to achieve that goal.

This generous initiative was awarded to Cooper Larkin, a deserving individual nominated by his employer, John Findlay of Just Add Water Pools Pty Ltd.

Findlay spoke highly of scholarship recipient Larkin, emphasising his exceptional dedication and curiosity in his work over the past seven years.

“Cooper has not only showcased his skills across a variety of challenging projects, including large-scale commercial and remote area installations, but also his leadership qualities among his peers,” he says.

“His proactive approach to learning and understanding the nuances of pool building has earned him the respect of colleagues who recognise his contributions far beyond his years.”

IRLearning general manager Wendy Donaldson says they were thrilled to support Larkin in his educational journey.

“This collaboration with Legend underscores our shared commitment to nurturing talent and ensuring that industry standards continue to grow higher," she says.

“Cooper’s achievement serves as a testament to the value of ongoing education and professional development in the pool and spa building sector. His success not only highlights individual accomplishment but also sets a benchmark for aspiring pool builders looking to make their mark in the industry.”
